With a time restraint of 48 hours and access to 700 spray paint cans, this group of artists worked for two days straight painting as much as they possibly could. Check out this video documenting the process and ideas behind this project that included artists such a Dotmasters, Conor Harrington, Loomit, Sickboy and others.

New mural by Escif in Moscow, Russia

Street Art // Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Assisting the Moscow government in some positive propaganda, Escif painted this giant saluting hand for an event humorously titled “The best city on the earth.” After the initial sketch was denied, the Spanish artist went with what he calls a “friendlier idea,” which was then approved by a panel. Apparently, the wall is located in close proximity to a famous bathhouse where many of the wealthy elite go to relax and as Escif puts it, “share some vodka and caviar with friends.”

Street Art // Monday, October 28, 2013
With the NYC premier of his short film opening tomorrow night at the Sunshine Cinema, Invader has declared (like many others right now) the Rotten Apple to be his current playground for installing mosaic tile works. Several new pieces have appeared high above the streets around Manhattan with various characters, our favorite starring Princess White eating an apple over a restaurant sign. A tiling of Donkey Kong has also popped up as well as Power Flower from Mario Bros. Like Banksy, Invader has started an Instagram so you can follow his "invasions" and play the street art treasure hunt game.

An Update of thoughts with Escif

Street Art // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We were just wondering where Escif has been and why we had not seen any new work from him popping up. His website was updated yesterday with some thoughts that we found interesting and felt inclined to share them here with you. "After a few months meditation, we start again with some changes in blog, structure and mind. Time goes fast and everything´s changing all around. Street is a nice place to play, but we are not totally agree on how the game´s coming, so lets try to push it with different rules."
